Ship Overview

This Motor Sailer’s engine provides a cruising speed of 10 knots, but the temptation to raise the sails in favourable conditions is always strong. Let our capable crew sail you past the limestone islands and cliffs of Asia’s coastlines and into the smaller port towns that mega-line cruise ships can’t get to. Want to enjoy the sunset in Ha Long Bay over a candlelit dinner right on the deck of the boat? We’ve got you covered. How about a snorkel, kayak, fish or stand-up paddleboard straight off the back? It’s experiences like these you won’t get on those other, behemoth-sized cruises.

The Panorama II accommodates 49 guests in 25 cabins, with a crew of up to 18. There are a range of indoor and outdoor options for dining and lounging, with the lower deck restaurant the perfect setting for your regionally-inspired meals. Meanwhile, the upper deck offers al fresco dining with sunset views. And the swimming platform at the rear allows you to swim right off the boat wherever we drop anchor.
